Amarillo, TX - The search for a downtown ballpark operator is temporarily on hold, pending results from the November election.
Friday the Local Government Corporation (LGC), the city board managing the downtown catalyst projects, returned the Amarillo Thunderheads' application to operate the proposed downtown ballpark without any action taken.
City council members recently instructed the LGC to not take any actions pertaining to the multi-purpose event venue (MPEV) until voters decide if it will contain a ballpark this November.
"The LGC has held the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) response for an extended period of time and the current instruction to the LGC from the City Council is take no action relative to the MPEV pending further guidance," said Amarillo City Manager Jarrett Atkinson. "Due to these reasons and the pending election, the RFQ was released."
